Lucille Hegamin was one of the very first black blues singers to record. "Everybody's Blues" is from her first record, made in November 1920 for the small independent Arto/Bell label. Her recording career lasted into the early 1930s. She is backed on this record by Harris' Blues and Jazz Seven. From the original 78 rpm disk (Bell P-45).

Mary Stafford sang blues primarily in the club circuit, but she also cut a dozen sides for Columbia in 1921 (she was the first black woman to record for Columbia). The full title of this piece is "I'm Gonna Jazz My Way Right Straight Through Paradise". It was recorded on March 7, 1921. The label credits "Mary Stafford and Her Jazz Band", but some sources I've seen credit Charlie Johnson's Orchestra with the accompaniment.

Clara Smith was a part of the great migration from the south, moving from her home in South Carolina to Harlem in the early 1920s, where she became a popular blues singer. She actively recorded throughout the 1920s, including this performance of "Don't Advertise Your Man" on April 23, 1924. There is an uncredited (and very minimal) piano and ukelele accompaniment. From the original 78 rpm disk.

W.C. Handy's first success, The Memphis Blues, composed in 1912, which started the first blues craze in the early 1910s (although not what we think of as Blues today). As far as I know this is the first commercial recording of The Memphis Blues, dating from July of 1914. It includes the first strain, which was dropped from the later vocal version (which is not by Handy). From the original 78rpm disk.

A recording from a reheasal of Cab Calloway's 'Minnie the Moocher'. Includes James Dexter playing the tuba and Simon Waters playing the double bass, both or whom we recorded and then looped. Other sounds are from things like a bin bag on a snare drum, an old kettle and Nick wheezing his lungs out into a microphone.

I'm completely ignorant of Japanese, so I used online translators to interpret the label. Based on that uncertain authority, the label seems to say that the songs are titled "Blues In The Morning" and "Boogie Woogie Girl", and the singer is Kasagi Shizuko. The band has a generic name, i.e., it's an unnamed studio band. I think this dates from around 1949. If anyone can add to or correct the above, please do. From the original 78rpm disk.
